confidante, to win tonight, running against ken cuccinelli. democrats have tagged him as out of the mainstream conservative. swamped by mcauliffe and his allies here. most expect mcauliffe to pull out a win in the mid to high single digits here in virginia. it's become a modern tradition in virginia that the party out of power picks up the governorship. we could see that streak end tonight. now to deb feyerick. >> hey there, peter. thanks so much. i am deborah feyerick in new york city where democrat bill deblasio is polling 40 points ahead of his democratic challenger. former staffer for both bill and hillary clinton, progressive vowing to close the fwap between rich and poor, by raising taxes on the rich to help educate low-income children. deblasio's biracial family has resonated with voters. joe lota is much more closely aligned with the policies of billionaire mayor mike bloomberg. deblasio would be the first democratic mayor in two decades. surprising, given that the majority of voters here in new york identify as democrats. now we go to my colleague, ana cabrera. ana? >> repo

. the problem with cuccinelli, he was with down and had no brand equity, which meant that the democrats can come in very early and define him as they did as an extremist, and frankly, i never thought he did an effective enough job introducing himself to the voters and getting rid of that. second of all, unlike new jersey where christi was seen as independent, i do think the republicans shot themselves in the foot on some of their antics in washington and had a much bigger impact on this race, and it wasn't until cuccinelli started to make obama care the main issue that he started to improve in the polls. >> i don't know if he's improving. because the latest poll still shows that terry has an advantage over him. now wouldn't you agree that both mr. mcauliffe and mr. christi are proudly embraced president obama because one thing you'll notice in new jersey that governor christi did not attack president obama, again, trying to attract some of the, what i call minority voters. >> i would disagree with embrace. because i think he was respectful. and i think, frankly, on the republi

. nominate the right candidates. >> ken cuccinelli may be able to -- i don't know, anna, did you see that? >> yeah. i've seen polls all over the place. i'm sure that the government shutdown issue hurt cuccinelli. i'm also sure what's happening with obama care is at some point hurting mcauliffe as well. so yes, i have seen polls as tight as seven points, five points. and others that have it as broad as 12 points and so, we're yet to see, look, you never know until election day and until you figure out what voters came out. if the democrat voters get overconfident, it could be very bad for them. >> go ahead, lz. >> i was going to say, it is important to note that virginia is a very special case. there is a very volatile civil war happening within the gop in that particular state. ken cuccinelli kind of did some shady stuff. they didn't didn't have a primary there, they add convention. the tea party and conservative christians took the tea party instead of a natural democratic process. what you mentioned before, anna, they are purple. in the primary process, it doesn't matter which party you

small but consistent lead over tea party favorite ken cuccinelli. both men are viewed unfavorably in the most recent quinnipiac poll. the other closely watched race, of course, is right here in new jersey. governor chris christie is taking on, quick, can you name his democratic opponent? it's state senator barbara bouno. we phrase it that way not to knock her but merely as a reflection of the current polls and the fact that national democrats haven't exactly been bending over backwards to give her a hand. christie is leading by nearly 30% in the quinnipiac poll that just came out yesterday. the governor is a republican in a decidedly blue state. president obama won here last year by 18 points, a landslide tonight could allow him to appeal to his party and say i can do the same thing at the national level if i run for president, appeal to democrats and he's made no secret that a run for the oval office is a possibility. first things first. earlier i boarded christie's bus to spend the day getting exclusive behind the scenes access to his re-election campaign for governor. it's morning

democrat terry mcauliffe. republican ken cuccinelli has tried to link mcauliffe to the president's shaky health care rollout. mcauliffe has tied his opponent to congressional republicans and the government shutdown. so it's really seen as this bell weather for how these issues will play out in future races. then there's this. mayor captain jack sparrow has a nice ring to it. perhaps you prefer the guy from the pirate party who's not captain jack sparrow. these are two of the 35 choices facing minneapolis voters today as they choose a new mayor. minneapolis did away with primary elections, allowing just about anyone with the $20 filing fee to run for the city's top jobs. voters are asked to pick their top three choices. if no one gets 50% of the vote, a series of run-off elections will determine the city's new mayor. depending on the outcome, city council meet in addition minneapolis could get a whole lot more interesting. and as we mentioned at the top of the hour, president obama's job approval ratings taking another hit. gallup, take a look at the numbers with me. just completed a surv
